Ebonite pen blanks

Made from vulcanised rubber, Ebonite is amongst the materials of choice for custom pen makers, or so called kitless pens, and it's superb for pen kits too. It's the material traditionally used by many of the best commercial pen manufactures as a high end alternative to acrylics or polyesters, and we supply our ebonite to several well known commercial pen manufacturers around the world.

Ebonite takes a fine thread, holds fine detail, cuts, drills and sands easily and polishes to an extremely high, lasting shine without the need to apply finishes or polishes.

It has a considerable dulling effect on tool edges however, and doesn't take very kindly to excessive heat, so you need to keep the sharpener handy, keep the lathe speed down, and keep abrasives moving. That said, if you are willing to work with those provisos, you will end up with a pen that looks and feels extremely high class.

Ebonite is opaque, so on pen kits there is no need to paint tubes or the inside of drill holes, and the caps, barrels and sections of custom pens will retain their opacity and integral strength even with thin walls.

We’ve made it available in 3 pre-cut lengths. Exact patterns may vary from piece to piece.

  • 60mm x 20mm - ideal for custom nib sections, and just right for most single barrel pen kits including Siroccos, Zephyrs and Sierras.
  • 150mm x 20mm - ample for custom pens that feature a contrasting nib section, and ideal for all double barreled pen kits.
  • 200mm x 20mm - ideal for custom pens that feature a matching nib section.

We can also supply any of our ebonite rods in bespoke lengths up to 1000mm, in increments of 10mm. Please enquire

Customer Reviews

Melody Berry
Beaufort Ink set themselves a high standard for product and service, then they hold themselves to that standard. I’ve always had great service and also very helpful telephone support when I had no idea what I was really needing. There's really is no reason for me to consider buying from anyone else.

Rosie Newton
High praise for Beaufort Ink for brilliant customer service and a lovely nib - I really should put them on speed dial. I'm fussy with nibs and they've come to the rescue again. They always take time to give brilliant advice and they're just a really nice guys.

Noah Joubert
Great service and delivery - I am very happy with the new nib I bought. I called them as I was uncertain about which would be the right one, but I got through to the owner who was very helpful and swiftly solved my query.

Tim McKenzie
Perhaps the classiest pen kits in the business and a great source for kitless building as well.
5/5
Nick Buckley
Without remembering who specifically took care of my order, I just have to say how pleased I am and simply blown away by the quality of service. I ordered a hand-full of products and must have mistakenly selected one incompatible item. My package arrived with a handwritten note and the piece that I'd meant to purchase. Thank you, I'm truly appreciative.

Ken Runciman

Alan Reynolds
Not only are Beaufort Ink's parts and kits of superb quality but the sales and after sales service is outstanding. I cannot rate the company highly enough - they ooze integrity and good service as well as quality products. Buy from them, and you cant go wrong.

Lee Cook

My order arrived over a week ago with extra pen refills, thank you.
In the main, people are quick to complain even when a minor issue such as mine is out of anybody’s control, so they should be as quick to say thank you.

I have known for a while that the quality of your products is head and shoulders above the competition's, and have now found out first hand that your customer service is of the same premium quality.
A very big thank you and well done to all at Beaufort Ink.
